This product was recommended by Ceola J. from CeolaJ

Does rape, domestic violence, barrenness, alcoholism, homelessness, divorce, academic failure and more make your life any less meaningful? The answer is a resounding NO, it doesn’t! I am suggesting this book to let women from every walk of life know “Your Past Does Not Destroy Your Destiny!” My advice is to never allow the things from our past, be it the countless wrongs done to us, the mistakes we ourselves made, bitterness and old hurts hinder us. God has a beautiful life of purpose fo each of us to live. Lives that were strategically designed and purposed to impact the world with His love, His grace and His mercy through His Son. My advice, is to let go of the past and the bondage of its pain to live in the fruitfulness of God’s purpose and divine plan.
